How to improve software systems system­at­i­cally, focused on economic and technical objectives

Microser­vices, containers and container managers have changed consid­erably the way we design, develop, and deploy software in recent years. Modern appli­ca­tions must work in a cluster of several nodes, be dynam­i­cally placeable, scalable and fault-tolerant.

Partic­i­pants will learn ways to implement dynamic cloud-native archi­tec­tures, container appli­cation design, logging/monitoring/alerting, container native storage and options for UI integration. Typical concepts of current container managers will also be demon­strated and how they can be used to implement common quality  criteria for larger web applications.

In addition, current cloud providers will be classified, possi­bil­ities for automation will be demon­strated and aspects of software devel­opment and the appli­cation lifecycle will be discussed.

CLOUD­INFRA focuses on operating aspects. The detailed concepts for the design and imple­men­tation of archi­tec­tures in the CLOUD­INFRA module are explained in an overview where necessary for understanding.
